Groundshire Limited began trading in 1978 when our current managing director's father decided that there was a need that required meeting within the post-mining groundwork industry.


Having worked in the mines for the National Coal Board and working his way up, he was well-positioned to provide expert advice within the area of mines and groundwork.

Over 40 years of experience is backed up with another 35 years of experience from our forefathers.

Since then, Groundshire has employed some incredible staff members and trained them to understand the ground in the same way. We have a number of employees who have over 40 years in the industry.

Our managing director, Ellen, studied geology to degree level and became an active member of the Groundshire team in the ’90s. Under the careful guidance of her father, she became a leader in her field and continues to provide insight into groundwork and mining issues even today.

With the experience at Groundshire, we are well versed in providing expert advice on the most complex of ground and mining investigations.
